Creation Museum CEO Ken Ham has clarified a number of recent media headlines that claimed he said "aliens are going to hell" by stating that he never said such a thing, and that he does not believe God created extraterrestrial life.
"I gave a theological reason why not. Understanding the Gospel that God's son became a man, became a descendent of Adam, became the God-man and remains the God-man our Savior, and that only humans can be saved — so obviously Jesus did not become a God-klingon, he became a God-man," Ham said in an interview with fellow creationist Ray Comfort on "The Comfort Zone," posted Wednesday.
Following a blog post on Answers in Genesis, where Ham criticized NASA's ongoing search for alien life, several news headlines came out suggesting that he said aliens are "going to hell." One such headline on Huffington Post last week read: "Creationist Ken Ham Says Aliens Will go to Hell so Let's Stop Looking for Them." more >>
Creation Museum CEO Ken Ham has criticized NASA's efforts to search for extraterrestrial life, arguing that God has not created life anywhere outside the Earth, and that the search for such life is driven by "man's rebellion."
"I'm shocked at the countless hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent over the years in the desperate and fruitless search for extraterrestrial life," Ham wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis on Sunday.
"Of course, secularists are desperate to find life in outer space, as they believe that would provide evidence that life can evolve in different locations and given the supposed right conditions! The search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man's rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!" more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham expressed "shock" that an Assembly of God member volunteered as a teacher for a Unitarian Church's "Evolution Camp" for children in Missouri.
"I must admit I was shocked to read (if it is true) that an 'Angela McCoy, who homeschools her son, Finn, 6, and is a member of a local Assembly of God church, volunteered as a teacher for Evolution Camp,'" he wrote. more >>
Secular groups in the U.K. are rejoicing after the government clarified that creationism, supported by biblical literalists, is not allowed to be taught as a scientifically valid theory at academies and public-funded schools.
The Department of Education's funding agreement, under the "Church of England and Catholic single academy model supplemental agreement" document published earlier in June, states that creationism "does not accord with the scientific consensus or the very large body of established scientific evidence; nor does it accurately and consistently employ the scientific method, and as such it should not be presented to pupils at the Academy as a scientific theory."
The statement adds: "The requirement on every academy and free school to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in any case prevents the teaching of creationism as evidence based theory in any academy or free school." more >>
Creation Ministries International has released the trailer for its new book and DVD documentary "Evolution's Achilles' Heels," which features commentary from 15 Ph.D. scientists on a mission to expose evolution's "fatal weaknesses."
"This project will be a very direct demolition of the very pillars of a foundational belief system that underpins our now-secular culture. It's coupled with the biblical command to reach the lost with the Bible's Good News. In a nutshell, it's a comprehensive outreach tool like no other," the organization's website promises.
The trailer, released on Tuesday, features a number of the scientists discussing research into the origins of life, natural selection, fossil records, the geologic column and other topics they say show evidence that the theory of evolution is not based on truth. more >>
A Gallup poll released earlier this week suggests that nearly 50 percent of Americans continue to believe that God created human beings "in present form" in the past 10,000 years.
According to Gallup's report, 42 percent of Americans assert this perspective, a figure which has stayed relatively consistent since the question was first asked in 1982, when 44 percent of respondents agreed with it. (It peaked in 1994 and 1999 with 47 percent.)
Thirty-one percent of Americans agreed with the statement that affirmed that God guided an evolutionary process from which humans evolved; only 19 percent of those surveyed said that the evolutionary process was devoid of the divine. more >>
